Check if your element id is defined properly.

It should work as expected, there is no security restriction. You can even switch between input types like: document.getElementById("password").type = 'textbox';


var password = document.getElementById('password');

if(password.value==""){
    alert('No password entered!');
}

It's this simple. This should work. You probably have some other javascript error that is preventing this code to execute. Try using console in firefox or chrome to see that error.
